Conversion features

The Sirus Ford Drive / Upfront is designed for wheelchair users who want to drive from your wheelchair, or travel upfront as a passenger from the comfort of your wheelchair.

We are proud to say the Ford WAV is our most superior conversion to date. With over fifteen years’ experience developing innovative vehicle conversions we have applied all of our knowledge and experience to our latest design. Combined with Ford’s latest Grand Tourneo Connect, this premium product offers a wide range of features giving you exceptional comfort and drive quality. If you have faced many different issues with WAV’s, read the top 20 things about how the Sirus Ford conversion has been designed helps to alleviate these problems.

Conversion Options

Option 1 – Combined Drive / Upfront (lowering suspension)- This conversion is for wheelchair drivers who also want to travel as an upfront passenger. Includes lowering air suspension with automated ramp and automated side sliding door. The big advantage to this conversion is the ramp is just 70cm in length.

 

Option 2 – Combined Drive / Upfront (standard suspension) –  As above, but this vehicle doesn’t have lowering suspension, so it is fitted with a slightly longer ramp (1.1m).

 

Option 3 – Upfront Passenger  – As you will always be travelling with a partner, you may not feel the need for automation. This more economical option offers standard suspension, a manual ramp (1.1m) and a manual side sliding door.

Conversion details

Lowered Flat Floor

The conversion has a lowered floor throughout the front of the vehicle, meaning you have exceptional interior space for a compact vehicle and very good visibility / eyeline. The maximum seated head height for a passenger is 58 inches / 147cm and for a driver 135cm / 53.5 inches.

The expertly designed flat floor allows you to swap between driver and passenger position with ease. The interchangeable front seats (which are on transfer wheels) can easily be moved into either position, so whilst you are out and about, you can choose to switch places with your companion.

Side Access

Designed for both independent wheelchair drivers and upfront wheelchair passengers, the Sirus Ford WAV gives you total flexibility and choice. The side access allows you to access the vehicle from the curb or easily from a disabled parking space.

Ramp

Many side entry ramps can be extremely long and steep and cause issues with parking. This conversion is specifically designed with the shortest ramp possible (from just 70cm) which has an angle below 11 degrees. The ramp is designed with an anti-slip coating, improving wheel traction in wet weather. The interior floor of the vehicle is also designed with an anti-slip material.

Lowering Air Suspension (optional)

The benefit of the lowering suspension is that the vehicle has a pre-set ground clearance and will always maintain constant ride height, regardless of the number of people or equipment carried in the vehicle. It also allows a very short ramp to avoid issues when parking. The 4-corner suspension lowers the vehicle when you enter and exit and when you are ready to drive away the suspension will rise to ride height.

Original Rear OEM Seats and Boot Space

Enjoy the comfort of two original manufacturer rear seats, which can be folded down to give you additional space for equipment. A fold-away step has also been fitted in the rear for additional comfort. A spacious boot which hasn’t been modified offers ample space for equipment and luggage. (Check out our gallery for an image of the popular Molift in the boot).  For ease of use or if travelling independently we can fit an optional automated tailgate.

Seating layout

Seating for four people with the option to switch from driver to upfront passenger and two OEM rear seats.

  • “The team were excellent, as always a real credit to the company. The service we have always had from yourselves is impeccable, always treating us with respect and dignity, many thanks.”

  • “I’ve been so impressed by your service over the purchase of my car. Thank you to all of you for your kindness, very polite and professional service and your patience. I hope that you as a business, and individually go far, because you deserve to do so.  I’m getting so much more confident at driving, everyday it’s lovely to have my freedom again”.

    Kerry , Yorkshire
  • “I would like to say a big thank you to Sirus for giving me my new-found independence, my car is my best friend, it’s always there and always ready, everything about my Sirus car is right.  At Sirus you and your staff really are the best, even the smallest details are given the same care as the most important ones. It has been a pleasure to deal with your company”.

    William , Hertfordshire
  • “My Sirus car has transformed my life. After thirty years the days of dragging my chair in and out are over. It’s not that I can’t manage it anymore because I can. It’s just that it is so much easier not to have to, particularly when it’s wet. The ramp is easy to us and the lock down system utterly reliable. I spin into my local town and get in and out of the car several times to use various shops.  I now don’t think twice about popping back to the shops when I have forgotten something. My husband who has a bad back doesn’t have to get my wheelchair in and out of the car unless he wants to. I have even driven to France by myself. On the rare occasion I have had a problem with the ramp it has been mended within 24 hours and that is in Scotland. So it’s worth the cost, I would not be without it”

    Sylvia , Scotland
  • “You feel like part of a family when you purchase one of their cars. The whole team is interconnected, either as friends or associates, so that personal, caring touch with great communication always comes across to customers like me. Even when we dropped by the Sirus factory without an appointment, Simon the Managing Director gave us a guided tour of the whole conversion workshop. I can honestly say that if you live with MS, a Sirus car can improve your independence no end.”

     

    Margaret , West Midlands
  • “During the demonstration at my home, I was so pleased with the mannerism, patience of the Sirus staff member as well as the overall feel of the demonstration. I didn’t feel sold to, the guys are called ‘Mobility Advisors’ which is exactly what he did, advise rather than pressure sales. Well Done Sirus.”
